Barno Ishakova (Iskhakova) (1927-2001) - MP3-CD from Uzbekistan


Here a MP3-CD by the great Shashmaqam singer Barno Ishakova (also transcribed as Iskhakova or Itzhakova), considered as the greatest female singer of the 20th century in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
Outside of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan she is hardly known. Only very few tracks by her have been published in two anthologies, both produced by Jean During:
1. Asie centrale - Traditions classiques, a 2 CD set, Ocora - Radio France, C 560035-36, published in 1993, unfortunately for many years out of print.
2. Echoes of Paradise - Women Voices from Central Asia - Echos du Pardis – Voix de femmes d'Asie Centrale – Avaz-e Minu, Set of 2 CDs, published in 2015. This fantastic double CD can be obtained from info@raga-maqam-dastgah.com


A couple of tracks we posted here in 2012. See, also for more information on the artist:



Again many thanks to Danny, who brought this CD from Uzbekistan and shared it generously with us.

Yet another great album, I do really appreciate. Do we know the album title and publication year? I'm sorry I cannot read cyrillic :-(.

This compilation was probably published about 10 years ago. It contains the (almost) complete recordings by the artist, probably from the 1950s to the late 1990s.

Just popped back to say another thank you. Great series of songs, fantastic voice, perhaps the best sustained series of great recordings from the Uz/Taj tradition I've heard. Marvellous. Thanks again!!
